Protein-protein Interaction (4)

Gene RIF (12)

24058506 Significant associations have been found between CpG sites and patient sex, including DNA methylation in CASP6, a gene that may respond to estradiol treatment, and in HSD17B12, which encodes a sex steroid hormone.
23435447 These evidences were suggestive of a 46,XY DSD due to 17betaHSD3 deficiency. An homozygous mutation (IVS3 -1 G>C or c.326-1G>C) of the 17betaHSD3 gene was discovered.
22903146 HSD17B12 overexpression is shown to be a marker of poor survival in patients with ovarian cancer; expression in the tumor and function of this enzyme facilitates ovarian cancer progression.
22190034 HIV-1 Vpu is identified to have a physical interaction with hydroxysteroid (17-beta) dehydrogenase 12 (HSD17B12) in human HEK293 and/or Jurkat cell lines by using affinity tagging and purification mass spectrometry analyses
21409596 High HSD17B12 expression is associated with neoplasms.
20677014 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19533843 SREBP-1 represents one of the transcriptional regulators of human 17beta-HSD12.
19460435 There is no difference in catalytic properties between variants of 17beta-HSD types 7 and 12 and wild-type enzymes, while variants p.Glu77Gly and p.Lys183Arg in 17beta-HSD type 5 showed a slightly decreased activity.
19429442 determined the activity and expression levels of known estrogenic 17beta-HSDs, namely types 1, 7 and 12 17beta-HSD in preadipocytes before and after differentiation into mature adipocytes
19190350 17beta-HSD12 is not \related to intratumoral estradiol biosynthesis in human breast carcinoma, but is correlated with production of very long chain fatty acids and tumor progresssion.
16621523 Location of 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 12 through the human body.
16166196 17beta-HSD12 is the major estrogenic 17beta-HSD responsible for the conversion of E1 to E2 in women.
